Social Determinants of Health: Employer Considerations for Addressing Greater Health Equity

The mounting social unrest, extreme economic uncertainty, and glaring healthcare disparities our country has seen over the past year have reinforced the need for employer benefits programs to account for and directly address employees’ social determinants of health (SDoH), which drive 80% of health outcomes.*

Listen to Rachael McCann, senior director of Health and Benefits at Willis Towers Watson, Dr. Bruce Sherman, medical advisor at the National Alliance of Healthcare Purchaser Coalitions and adjunct professor in the Department of Public Health Education at UNC-Greensboro, and Mary Cain, senior director of Behavior Change and Clinical Strategy at Castlight Health, as they lead a discussion about employer considerations in designing a benefits program that incorporates SDoH in order to support the unique and dynamic needs of employees.

Learn how the latest research on health equity and use of data-driven insights can address a diverse range of SDoH challenges and achieve an equitable benefits design.

Watch the webinar and learn:

  • How have the pandemic, racial inequities, and other factors intensified the impacts of SDoH and how does this affect employee health and productivity?
  • What best practices are Willis Towers Watson clients implementing to address SDoH in their benefits programs?
  • How can data help employers identify their vulnerable populations and drive actionable, personalized recommendations that empower employees to better manage their health?
